Is it possible to write about jam without constantly hearing this song play in your head? We’re jammin’, I wanna jam it wid you. We’re jammin’, jammin’, And I hope you like blueberry jammin’, too.
Blueberry jam reminds me of my childhood. Not because my mother made homemade jam, actually I don’t think she’s ever made homemade jam in her life. It reminds me of a donut that
Dunkin Donuts Mister Donuts had called “The Blueberry Bismark”. I searched for this and Google basically told me it does not exist but they lie because trust me I had a few too many Blueberry Mismarks as a kid to forget this great treat. The donut had a creamy sweet vanilla icing which was super soft and it was filled with blueberry jam. I knew I was a good girl when Mom brought me home a Blueberry Bismark. I wish that was how life was today. Oh I cleaned my bedroom, is somebody going to bring me home a donut? Please, bring me a home a donut.
I was wanting some blueberry jam but I didn’t want to make a big batch of it, in fact I wanted to make jam with just 1 pint of blueberries. I had this one pint of blueberries staring at me in the eyes for the past week and I was seeing jam. Jam it was! We jammin.. We jammin (sorry, I can’t help it). This jam recipe is great because it’s quick, it’s easy, and it makes 4 oz of blueberry jam which is a perfect amount. How do I use my blueberry jam? On toast, on muffins, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! I would recommend it over ice cream too. Actually I would recommend you just eat it with a spoon out of the jar because it’s that good but I’m a horrible influence.
1 Pint Blueberry Jam
1 pint blueberries
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Put all ingredients into a saucepan and stir.
Bring to boil, then simmer for 30-35 minutes until jam consistency.
Keep in jar refrigerated.
You can use your food strainer if you'd like, just run your berries through with your berry attachment and then continue directions above.
